The Italian football club were in August paired in Group A with Ajax, Liverpool and Rangers during the UEFA champions league group stage draws.
However, hours ahead of the opening match, Napoli released a terse statement via their official website, stating that Osimhen picked up a knock in Napoli’s 2-1 win over Lazio at the Stadio Olimpico on Saturday.
“Victor Osimhen trained on his own following a knock that he picked up towards the end of the win over Lazio,” the statement reads.

EPL: We Played Better Than Man United – Gabriel Jesus Speaks On Arsenal’s 3-1 Defeat At Old Trafford
Brazilian professional footballer who plays as a striker for Arsenal, Gabriel Jesus on Sunday night reacted to the Gunners’ embarrassing defeat at Old Trafford.
Naija News reports that Manchester United thrashed visiting Arsenal 3-1 yesterday in their English Premier League clash.
Mikel Arteta’s side which has been on the winning streak since the ongoing season began, lost woefully to Erik Ten Hag’s men who are just regaining their stand in the EPL.
Though Arsenal dominated most of the game at Old Trafford, the Red Devils made good use of their chances to unsettle the defence line of the North London club.
Speaking hours after the game, Jesus said there were frustrations in Arsenal’s dressing room moment after the embarrassing defeat.
He said “The feeling is frustration because we controlled the game and the first two goals we conceded, we were better than them.
“So we are not happy because, in my opinion, we could have won because we played so much better.
“But that’s football. If you don’t go there and kill, you are going to have a big problem – and that’s what happened. Now is the time to learn from it and improve. We are doing so well this season, but there are still things to improve for everyone, as individuals and as a team.”
